Fijian Art Research Project

This major AHRC funded project aimed to unlock the potential of the outstanding collections of Fijian art, material culture and associated photographs and archives held in museums in the United Kingdom and abroad. The bulk of these Fijian collections have never been displayed, nor have they ever been thoroughly researched or documented. See the project website for extensive details of the activities and research undertaken during the course of the project.

The main work of the project has come to a close, with the exhibition Fiji: Art & Life in the Pacific at the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts during 2016-17 being a significant output from the research.
